RISE Annual Breakfast

We are incredibly excited about our Second Annual DCI RISE Breakfast, held Wednesday morning, May 18 at 8:30 AM. 

This all-virtual event will be hosted on the website, and will feature an inspiring program sharing stories of the resilience and growth of DCI families. It will also feature a keynote speech by Bakari Sellers, who at age 22 was the youngest African American elected official in the country as a member of the South Carolina legislature.
Please visit the website to register today!

During the RISE breakfast, we will:
  • REUNITE our community
  • INSPIRE each other with the stories of success that have grown out of our work
  • SUPPORT our mission
  • EMPOWER Durham youth and families
